Santa Maria Sun /
The Santa Maria Sun must receive submissions for calendar listings at least one week prior to the publication date before the scheduled event. Listings, including ongoing meetings, must include a calendar date.
Events to be listed must take place in Santa Barbara County or San Luis Obispo County, with some exceptions at the calendar editor's discretion. Events will be listed in only one section (for example, either Concerts or Special Events, but not both).
The Web calendar will include all event listings that appear in print, in addition to ongoing events that may appear only in the Web calendar. The calendar listings include Special Events, Concerts, Nightlife, Stage, Dance Lessons, Kids and Family, Recreation, Learning, Art, Health, Farmers Markets, Barbecues, Spiritual, and Clubs and Meetings.
Events appearing in the print calendar must have a time element to them, such as a start date, end date, duration, or meeting date. Even listings for ongoing events (such as regular club meetings) must have a specific date attached to them (not just "every third Thursday").
Santa Maria Sun reserves the right to edit submissions for style and clarity, and to move events into appropriate sections as necessary.
Submissions that fail to meet these guidelines may not be accepted. Submission does not guarantee placement in either the Santa Maria Sun print version or on the website.
